•So rare that guys w/ Tim’s physique have his flexibility and dexterity, helps him pass guard and finish takedowns in odd positions
Tim is keeping Mike from getting to the cage, Mike needs butterfly guard to make space but Tim's hips are very flexible & he is a hobbit

Dominick Cruz @TheDomin8r
Unless he goes 4 a submission-Bisping will not get up to his feet while locking himself down in half guard! Release the bottom leg.

James MacDonald @JimMacDonaldMMA
Wow, Bisping conned the ref into that stand up.

I seriously think Askren could jump in the cage right now and pin both of these jabronies

Adam Martin @MMAdamMartin
What were people expecting from Bisping tonight exactly? He nearly had to retire, and was competitive with the most underrated MW in the UFC

Ariel Helwani @arielhelwani
If ya ask me, the big winner here tonight is Luke Rockhold. Has wins over Jacare and Kennedy in SF. Win next week puts him in a good spot.
